    Well, damn, good luck!

    500 degrees? Eep! The best chicken recipe I know calls for the chicken to be roasted at 475 degrees for a few minutes before turning it down; perhaps this recipe is a knock-off of that. (I will say: it does produce gorgeous, golden, crackling skin!)

    500 is really high,it's like self clean high.After the self clean cycle,it needs a couple of hours to cool down,and it will not unlock before.How long has it been since it's been off?Could it still be too hot,therefore it is not unlocking?

    So I just went back to the recipe - Emeril - and all the reviews say the temp is ridiculous! I don't know why DH didn't read them. Given up on it now. Oven still won't open. So much for this cooking nonsense!

    Ohmuhgosh who asked if KFC was open??

    Legend, you are nominated for best OT Day thread today! How could you not be what with your non cooking devil invoking mother, sweet yet inept fella and a recipe for cooking a small bird at the usual temperature for scorching clean a metal surface!?

    Default I really hate to say this

    I had a GE oven, put it on self clean and couldn't get it to open at the end of the cycle.

    EVER

    I had to buy a new oven.

    It was a built in and the only one that would fit in the opening is a GE. IIRC it cost almost $2000

    I haven't gotten up the nerve to run the cleaning cycle....and it really needs it

    I hope you can get the oven open

    Unless the oven is broken, then I imagine it will open by tomorrow morning. Definitely toss the chicken right into the outside garbage though-it will be a mass of charcoaled bacteria by then.

    500 degress?

    Is there a little child lock knob at the top, sort of right in the seal of the top part of the door? That's my best guess...

    Eek! Yeah, it must be the "self-clean" function, when that's on, it's locked. I have NEVER heard of cooking chicken at 500 degrees! If you want to fry it, just fry it . Pizza, yeah, the hotter and faster the better, but not chicken. My big 7 lb roasters go in at 350 and cook for several hours. I've even cooked them at 250 for longer and they came out well. Chicken is fragile and likes to be cooked gently

    Another vote for the all around award to you.
    This post will become a classic we will talk about forever.

    I hope your family will laugh also and make out of this a memorable and fun to remember Christmas experience.

    Exactly why I don't cook because that would happen to me!!

    Thankfully my BF does all the cooking and likes doing so.

    I hope you found something else to eat!

    Also, I agree best thread ever!

    I just went to look at it is an electric GE Profile.

    I have it turned off, has been on only once, when a friend came for Thanksgiving two years ago and was bringing some turkey dinner, I thought already cooked.
    No, she intended to prepare and cook it here and we had to turn the oven on to cook some of it.
    Glad it didn't go on strike then, like yours has.
    I don't think I will chance using it again, no sense in pushing my luck.

    I would still suggest a bigger hammer if it doesn't open by tomorrow.

    I hope your mother will not make you pay for her new oven.

    I'm so glad to see this post and know I'm not the worst cook in the world after burning half of our Christmas dinner. )
